Vicarious Trauma and Disaster Mental Health focuses on the clinician and the impact of working with disaster survivors. Floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, mass shootings, terrorism and other large-scale catastrophic events have increased in the last decade and disaster resilience has become a national imperative. This book explores vicarious traumatization in mental health providers who respond to massive disasters by choice or by circumstance. What happens when clinicians share the trauma and vulnerability from the toll taken by a disaster with the victims they care for? How can clinicians increase resilience from disaster exposure and provide mental health services effectively? Vicarious Trauma and Disaster Mental Health offers insight and analysis of the research and theory behind vicarious trauma and compares and contrasts with other work-impact concepts such as burnout, compassion fatigue and secondary traumatic stress. It proposes practical evidence-informed personal strategies and organizational approaches that address five cognitive schemas (safety, esteem, trust, control and intimacy) disrupted in vicarious trauma. With an emphasis on the psychological health and safety of mental health providers in the post-disaster workplace, this book represents a shift in perspective and provides a framework for the promotion of worker resilience in the standard of practice in disaster management.

As counselors and psychotherapists find themselves in more diverse settings than was characteristic of the profession a decade ago, the need for full coverage of ethical issues has increased. In Ethics in Counseling and Psychotherapy: Standards, Research, and Emerging Issues, Elizabeth Reynolds Welfel introduces students to the ethical standards of counseling and psychology and helps students develop an understanding of the ethical principles underlying those standards. In addition, the book presents Welfel's nine-step model of ethical decision-making for analyzing complex ethical problems in mental health practice and integrates current research on ethics, fosters ethical sensitivity, and examines the impact of recent changes in practice on responsible professional behavior. Welfel also includes an often neglected topic -- how to take responsibility when one does engage in unethical behavior. Through thoughtful guidance and illuminating applications, Welfel helps students understand their own vulnerability to unethical behavior and teaches ways to help them reduce their risk of committing such violations.
